A balanced and refreshing Chardonnay with expressive fruit and complex savory minerality. Made from hand-harvested grapes farmed sustainably on our estate from multiple clones on different field sites. The 2013 vintage was unique and exceptional, perhaps the greatest growing season in 40 years of Long Island winemaking. James Suckling, former Editor of Wine Spectator, said "Fresh apple with milk and honey. Some tropical fruit. Medium to full with creamy texture."
